What's an agency?

In eCourtDate, each Agency is a unique account with its configuration and data. Similar to creating multiple profiles on your computer, each agency allows you to better control your messaging and usage.

You may create different agencies for any purpose. For example, a County may want to create an agency for Municipal Court, Adult Probation, Juvenile Probation, etc. An AOC or IT office may create an agency for each district in their jurisdiction.

Data and configuration are not shared across agencies. A Super Admin user on agency A may be a limited Officer on Agency B (or not even added to Agency B).

When to create a new agency?

  • You want to use eCourtDate for different client types (Jurors, Defendants, Probationers, etc).

  • You want to use eCourtDate for staff in different physical locations.

  • You are an administrative or IT office serving multiple groups, departments, districts, or locations.
